Hi,

 

Please log on to your wifi router, the security key of your network is in it. You can use a computer which is connecting to your router to setup, printer can get information from your computer, no need to enter key on its tiny screen.

 

Regards.

Thanks for your help. You provided information that AT&T Technical Help offered to do for

a yearly subscription of $180 or (Big deal) a one time charge of $49.

 

I did 'poke around' , but found a lot of pages full of abbrevations and numbers that I didn't

understand. I will go back and keep trying. I don't know why HP made it so hard to connect

to my Wi-Fi. In all the dozens of printers I have installed before I was never asked for the "WPA

security passphrase".

 

You said that I could use my computer screen instead of the small screen on the printer.

How do I open that up?

 

You help is IMMENSLY appreciated.  Thank you
